Aptasia?

Not sure if u can make out the pics but any help is welcome! Also 2 other things
1) does anyone know what the red/pink thing is on the last pic?

2) there is a long stringy thing on the left of the red/pink thing that seems to go into a tube? Is this a tube worm and if it is should I worry about it?

Thanks for any help!

Also I think that the aphasia is next to the group of three polyps at the bottom left of the pic?

Thanks again!!

yes, that's aptasia.
don't worry about the tube worm.
not sure about the pink thing. could be a sponge or tunicate. gotta wait and see what it turns into.

Scroll down this link to Foraminifera. That`s my opinion on the pink thing. Nice article on them also.
